At the start of the Master Seminar weekend at Ave Maria University, there was a ceremony for the renowned Dr. Matthew Levering where he was presented with the Aquinas Center for Theological Renewal’s Veritas Medal by Drs. Roger Nutt and Michael Dauphinais. Dr. Nutt began introducing us to Dr. Levering by giving us a small sample from his very lengthy curriculum vitae. A prolific writer, Dr. Levering has made a name for himself by engaging with modern and contemporary authors and bringing their insights and questions into conversation with St. Thomas and Scripture.
Dr. Levering’s long list of achievements makes it clear that he is rightly reckoned to be in the company of other notable recipients such as Russell Hittinger, Fr. Romanus Cessario, OP, Janet Smith, and Avery Cardinal Dulles, among others.
N.B. The Veritas Medal honors an eminent Catholic thinker whose career reflects the Aquinas Center’s goal to foster the search for truth. Since the attainment of truth is a participation in the Wisdom of Christ, the Veritas Medal serves to recognize those who have instantiated, in their lives and work, the integration of faith and reason. Drs. Michael Dauphinais, Steven Long, and Roger Nutt serve as the Co-Directors of the Aquinas Center for Theological Revewal.
